Ambient modular music: Phonogene, Synchrodyne, Piston Honda and Wogglebug

November 26, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Cwejman MX4S is where all of the panning is coming from for each of the 4 channels. The Harvestman Piston Honda is making the static style noise on Channel 4: WMD Synchrodyne is making the semi step filter sound with help from the Harvestman Double Andore on Channel 3: The other strange drone sound is stacked audio out from the Wogglebug on Channel 2: And the Make Noise Phonogene is on channel 1. On the Phonogene I just hit some random notes with my Teenage Engineering OP-1 and recorded in a random off time loop and threw in some random slices.

Closer look at the Drone FX for the iPad

August 8, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Music iOS app demo of Drone FX. A great app for making ambient music and atmospheric sounds.

“This is my first go at it and still working out a few things, such as ending a sound. A few of the sliders don’t seem to do much but perhaps they do! I like though. You can get it through the app store, with a link below, for $2.99.

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/drone-fx/id499500746?mt=8

Drone FX has the following modes of operation:

- Auto (Generative music in all it’s glory)
- Manual (For the musician in you)
- Hybrid (Auto + Manual)

Users can play along with soundscapes generated in auto mode, or create ambient music without automation using the built-in keyboard(s).

BT – Le Nocturne de Lumière

October 30, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

New nice instrumental electronica track from BT. Please be patient and listen till the drums get going :-)

To be additive. I wish in some small way to bend the collective human narrative towards the positive.

To inspire untold (even to me) small leaps of faith that germinate and grow in people I will never know.

To make music that makes people feel connected & less alone. That inspires people to face life and even if they fail to do so with dignity.

BT’s “Le Nocturne de Lumière” is available on These Hopeful Machines:

Solvent’s new video – “Curtains”

September 30, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

“Curtains” by Solvent. Toronto based Jason Amm (aka Solvent) has been making underground electro pop for over a decade now – since electro’s second wave. He loves analogue synthesizers – which date back to the early days of the genre, and he loves singing through a vocoder. What’s not to love? His greatest hits CD Demonstration Tape (1997-2007) is essential listening, and his song “My Radio” should be heard by anyone who likes any kind of pop music.

Video directed by Jonathan Morris. Please be sure to check out his excellent video work via his YouTube channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/roadkillcopulator

Footage shot by Solvent.

“Curtains” is taken from the 12-inch-vinyl/digital release “RDJCS5-ep” (09/2011, Suction Records – suction022).

Available to purchase through BandCamp:
http://solvent.bandcamp.com

In-depth technical info:
http://modyfier.wordpress.com/2011/07/25/solvent-process-part-271/

In April 2006, a Yamaha CS5 monosynth, having been owned by Richard D James (Aphex Twin), with the actual liner notes for his landmark “Selected Ambient Works Volume II” etched into the bottom, was sold at VEMIA auction for approximately $1200 – a bargain in retrospect. The winning bidder was, in fact, a friend of Solvent’s, and the synth resides not in a display case, but in Solvent’s studio, on generous long-term loan.

“RDJCS5″, a new 4-track 12-inch / digital EP by Solvent, is the result. Each and every sound on this record came from RDJ’s old CS5, painstakingly programmed and multi-tracked by Solvent over the course of several months. The limited capabilities and sound palette of this humble little synth provided quite a challenge, but ultimately the results are not merely an exercise in technical synthnerdery; “RDJCS5″ speaks more of Solvent’s musical kinship to thee Analord.

The 12″ vinyl edition is limited to 300 copies, in brown chipboard sleeve with sticker, and also contains an additional noise/drone piece at the end of side B. Entitled “Sandpaper”, this cut will be individually hand-etched by Solvent, for a 1-of-a-kind cut/click/loop experience.
